Real-time Cloud Connectivity for Large Scale Solar Infrastructure
Major UK Organisation
60 Second Sample Rate
2 Week Deployment
One of the largest private multi-panel solar estates in the UK approached Hark to assist with the continued connectivity of their distributed energy assets across their UK wide estate.
The company came to Hark for a number of industrial IoT connectivity initiatives with the aim to simplify and streamline cloud connectivity of different types of assets.
A key asset type was their extensive array of solar inverters. With over 1600 in total across their estate, accessing real-time health and energy performance data became paramount for managing, maintaining, and offering ancillary services based on the data generated by the devices.

What That Means For an Enterprise Client
Key Business Drivers
There were several key business priorities driving the initiative
What were the lasting results of working together with a UK enterprise to implement device connectivity for their solar assets?
Deployment and connectivity delivered in 2-weeks
By utilising existing cloud technologies available through the Hark and Microsoft Azure. The technology teams had a system they could use within 2-weeks, saving time and development costs.
Reduced requirement to purchase unnecessary replacement hardware
Our client now has insights on where an asset is in its lifecycle and whether it truly needs replacing.
Real-time data used to power AI and Machine Learning models for intelligent forecasting
Access to real-time data has meant our client is now able to closely maintain all of their assets.
Customisable Analytics and Dashboards built-in
Out of the box modules from the Hark Platform powered real-time alerting, reporting and custom dashboards to existing teams within the same time-frame of the deployment
Deployment of future-proofed technology stack for monitoring and asset control
Our technology provided the client with a constantly updating and improving software which allowed them to layer on further assets such as metrological monitoring and energy storage systems.
Data & Engineering teams now having API’s and data feed access to optimise further
With the right data, these teams are empowered to fully access and build on top of the device connectivity platform – this enabled tablet applications, workforce management integrations and more.
